Zombie World is a fun short story based around Virtual Reality and how it may be used in a none to distant version of the world. Zombie World is a fully immersive video game using virtual reality. The game allows players to explore a zombie hunting game overlaid upon the real world.Zombie_World_KDP_Cover_01A stag party group travel to Scotland for a weekend of the most intense and realistic virtual reality game as something new and interesting to try. As a video gamer myself, who has tried VR I enjoyed the concept behind this story. It was a fun, quick read.

Until similar events seem to occur at other Zombie World locations around the country. All in all, a fun, short story.
